Thanks but I'm looking the actual price (that goes out there) instead of something out of estimation.

the actual price would vary depending on whether or not the seller thinks he can monetarily assrape you or not. kbb is giving you an estimate to work with. currently for that bike is 5905$ So, if you come across one that is stock with a new slip-on and he's asking for 7K, you can tell him to K.Y.A. or haggle a better price. on the other hand, if some guy is trying to unload one for 3500$, you know its a pretty good deal.

Hell, I never even consider paying KBB retail for a used bike. I try to pay closer to KBB trade-in. Depends a lot on the bike, and the seller, and the reason for selling. Some people just want out, and if you can find them, make an offer. Others seem to think that a bike doesn't depreciate a couple grand as soon as it leaves the showroom floor and ask new bike prices for used bikes. Don't walk, run from them. Look at KBB and go from there. Looking at sites like cycletrader.com, etc. will only tell you what people are asking, not what they got. You can look at eBay and see what people paid, but you can often do better than eBay.

But the real bottom line is, how much are you willing to pay, and what do you want. Every bike will differ in terms of color, condition, mileage, aftermarket parts, maintenance, etc. I'd much rather pay $1,000 for a bike that was maintained by someone like Scot, Steve, or Bambam than some guy with bald tires and a reddish/brown chain.
